Eliminate a dangerous design flaw from your fuel system!

Vanagons feature a fuel system is constantly recirculating gasoline (or diesel in some cases) from the tank to the engine and back to the tank again. Hoses carrying this fuel pass through the metal firewall as in enters and exits the engine compartment. So what, you say? Well, all 2WD Vanagons came with a plastic firewall adapter (see image slider) that connected fuel lines on each side of the engine firewall. After several decades of service, this fitting delivering fuel to the engine becomes incredibly brittle and is responsible for numerous engine fires. In our opinion, this is a must-replace part. 

This kit has all you need to replace that dangerous plastic adapter with a barbed metal fitting, and also includes an additional barbed fitting for the hose junction that leaves the engine compartment as it passes back through the firewall. Custom firewall grommets and ear clamps round out the group.

Fits: 1983-91 2WD Watercooled Vanagon

Kit contents:
• (2) Barbed metal hose adapter fittings
• (2) Custom firewall grommets*
• (4) Stainless ear clamps

*Our custom-made rubber grommets fit snugly into the firewall and secure the bomber 5mm-to-7mm hose adapter fittings for connecting the plastic fuel hardline to the rubber fuel hose. This not only makes the connection easy to access for installation, but also keeps the hard plastic fuel line out of your hot engine bay.

Installation Note: The crimp-style ear clamps require pincer pliers to install. We also HIGHLY recommend this product for use in conjunction with our Engine Fuel Hose Replacement Kit.
